Nov 23 INSEAD Board Training: IN-BOARD Switzerland 2017


Dear Alumni,
Promoting INSEAD´s principle of life-long learning, the INSEAD Board (IN-BOARD) Initiative is an executive education program organized by the International Alumni Association for our alumni who are involved in or aspire to play a role on boards of directors or advisory boards – from small & medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to listed corporations.

Announcing INSEAD Board Training (IN-BOARD) 2017-2018 (5th edition)

The kick-off weekend on campus in Fontainebleau is led by INSEAD Professor Erik van de Loo and will introduce IN-BOARD participants from the Belgian, Dutch, German, Norwegian and Swiss National Alumni Associations (NAAs) to board dynamics and effectiveness. A full day of leadership development coaching will also be incorporated. Subsequently, local modules developed for the Swiss NAA on Legal, Strategy, HR, Accounting & Auditing and Startup board topics are offered by top-level professional service firms and well-known Business Angels in a series of Zurich-based workshops, tailored specifically to the Swiss corporate environment.
